What do you get when you combine shopping for name brand fashion and accessories, local celebrities and fund raising for charity? None other than the prestigious “8th Clutter Sale for Charity” which was held at the Grand Ballroom in Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok on Sunday, 6 October 2013. This year it was organized by the News Makers and was once again a resounding success.
Held annually since 2006, this much-awaited one-day event has been attracting hundreds of bargain hunters on the lookout for treasures sold by the glitterati and members of the expat and diplomatic communities. Support has grown over the past years and includes the Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok and prominent personalities, various women’s groups and the community at large. Proceeds from the Clutter Sale will go towards the ‘Hematological Cancer Research Centre’ at Chulalongkorn Hospital for cancer research.
The goods sold this year were primarily unused or nearly-new second-hand items in mint condition, certified brand-name goods, vintage clothes, fashion accessories, jewellery, home accessories, sports equipment and antiques. Various hotels and resorts, Turkish Airlines, Bangkok Airways, Air Asia and others have donated items and vouchers as raffle prizes for the event. Celebrities who participated at this year’s Clutter Sale included Kunyarat Pladisai, Praewa and Krongkarn Phongsathorn, Tipaporn Ajanant, Vee Mar, Madame Chantal Meagher, Kristie Kenney, Nandhamalee Bhirombhakdi, Atchara Tejapaibul, Kornkanok Yongsakul and many more.
